Petrol between Jura and Portree ?

Evening all

Any recommendations of good waterside petrol between these spots without the need to lug jerry cans ?
Thanks in advance.

From personal experience only (sure there is more):

Oban - waterside pump at Puffin Divers
Tobermory (Mull) - pump at head of pontoons - (100m) an easy option
Mallaig - pump just inland from the harbour - not quite such an easy option, but good.

There is VERY VERY good Fish & Chips in Mallaig. Probably the best in the overall willk/Mrs willk experience.

You can get fuel from the pier at Arisaig Marina - a few miles south of Mallaig.
Very helpful folk and you can partake of a snack and cuppa in the cafe beside.

If you can't make Tober you can get some at Loch Aline where you can partake of the best hamburger at the kiosk on the old jetty
